High Heeled Traders

Trump and Other Big Bangs

January 18, 2017

Finally made it back to this blog! Took a break from writing over the holidays, and there were very enticing subjects to write about but I just didn’t have the time!

Anyway, big bang happening with the Brexit statement and Trump buckling down to work soon — and those policy statements supposed to roll in,  like today’s “strong dollar rant”  via  Twitter.  That said, also China stocks falling more than 6% yesterday is making memories flood in of the market meltdown — ahhh around this same time last year. So beware.

I for one have decided, while there is a lot of volatility expected, will trade shorter timeframes to control my risk. I have also just accepted that my time for the children’s activities in school and well-being is taking much more time and focus than I have allowed for, so my new trading timeframe needs adjustment also. As Van Tharp says, “trade as it fits you” and what fit me before has changed.

Also what I used to write here is more on market analysis, and this year, I will focus on discussing more on how we can trade successfully, guided with the peak performance studies of Dr. Tharp. These would include :
> Making decisions — are we doubting ourselves and wasting time / opportunities?
> Motivations — being in a “slump” and there is such a problem as being too motivated 🙂
> Mental blocks — there are many, and most are familiar with this thing called FEAR.

Watch out for the webinars and events I will be hosting …

So, with a rainbow I captured on New Year’s Day, welcome to 2017 and Trading success!
